NY Times Says Some Jewish Students Feel Targeted

It’s like they’re trying to equivocate and minimize what’s going on

They don’t feel targeted: they are targeted. They article is better than the headline, which was eventually changed

Days after Columbia University’s president told Congress that she would work to tamp down antisemitism, some pro-Palestinian demonstrations on and around campus veered into the harassment of Jewish students, drawing the attention of the police and the concern of a number of Jewish students.

Over the weekend, the student-led demonstrations on campus attracted separate, more agitated protests by demonstrators who seemed to be unaffiliated with the university just outside Columbia’s gated campus in Upper Manhattan, which was closed to the public because of the protests.

Those demonstrations took a dark turn on Saturday evening, as protesters targeted some Jewish students with antisemitic vitriol that was captured in video and pictures, both inside and outside the campus. The verbal attacks left a number of the 5,000 Jewish students at Columbia fearful for their safety on the campus and its vicinity, and even drew condemnation from the White House and Mayor Eric Adams of New York City.

Protesters and counterprotesters have occasionally faced off, and there have been several moments in which demonstrators have yelled intimidating phrases. In one instance, video captured a person holding up a sign that said, “Al-Qasam’s Next Targets,” referring to Hamas’s armed faction, near several Jewish counterprotesters. Mr. Adams said the police had already increased its presence near the campus and would investigate any potential violations of the law.

Yeah, there’s lots of video of this and other pro-Islamic terrorism and Jew hatred. All those students who are posting it to their social media accounts and saying they were there are going to have a big surprise when no company will hire them

Columbia University to Hold Classes Remotely After Weekend Protests

Columbia University announced early Monday that it would hold classes remotely, a move that highlighted worsening friction at the school after a wave of protests on campus over the weekend.

While they may have been considering all the Jewish and other students who do not feel safe on campus, this certainly helps all the pro-Hamas folks the ability to be in their tents and such and still “attend” class. What they should have done was provide proper security and said that anyone not coming to class will be marked absent, which will affect their grades.

NYU students jump on anti-Israel tent camp bandwagon, chant antisemitic, anti-cop phrases

New York University students are jumping on the anti-Israel tent camp bandwagon.

The downtown Manhattan university has become the latest pricey college to see students set up encampments on campus as they protest Israel and the war in the Gaza Strip.

The protesters made camp across NYU’s Stern School of Business in Manhattan on Monday morning as they called on the school to divest from the Jewish state and push for an end to its campaign across the Palestinian enclave.

The students were seen waving Palestinian flags on the streets and sidewalks, with others hanging up signs to “Honor the Martyrs of Palestine.”

They’re referring to Hamas as martyrs. You know, any of the people protesting who are not natural born citizens should be deported immediately, even if they had been given citizenship (it can be stripped) or permanent resident status. We don’t need Islamic extremists in this nation.

This is going to be a big problem for Democrats with an election coming up: they should realize how bad this looks and how much this is going to turn off Independents and moderate Democrats.

    “Judgement Day will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews. The Jews will hide behind the stones and the trees, and the stones and the trees will say, oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew hiding behind me — come and kill him.” Sahih al-Bukhari 2926, Book 56, Hadith 139.

    We all know of the immaturity and ignorance of the young, though, alas! college students always seem to think that they are more edumacated and know more than they actually do. It isn’t that much of a surprise when they react more strongly and radically, though we can hope that they eventually grow up and out of it before they do too much damage.

    The young have always brought energy and ideas coupled with immaturity to the party… consider immaturity to be a lack of wisdom and experience. “With age comes wisdom, but sometimes age comes alone” (Oscar Wilde).

    The very wise Dr Scott Galloway (NYU) has tried to explain to us what today’s youth are going through.

    This generation is not as successful as their parents…

    what I believe is the greatest challenge facing the U.S. It’s not inequality, climate change, or war in the Middle East, but an issue that threads these threats together: America’s war on the young.

    We’ve protected the wealth created by ownership at the expense of income earned by labor through the tax code, which favors gains from investments. Gains from stock sales are taxed at lower capital gains rates. Real estate holdings can appreciate tax free, and once sold, the gains can be rolled into another investment. Again, a series of transfers of wealth from earners (youth) to owners (seniors).

    And what taxes are collected are increasingly redistributed to the generation who needs them least. In 1985 the federal government spent three times more per capita on seniors than it did on kids. By 2019 that ratio had risen to eight times. We’ve cut senior poverty from 17% in the 1970s to 9% today, which is admirable. But child poverty has risen over that same period, from 16% to 19%.

    the shattering of the social contract has left them (young adults) feeling rage and shame. Half of Americans older than 55 say they are “extremely proud” to be American; that number drops to 18% among 18- to 34-year-olds.

    Today: It’s nearly impossible for the young adults to buy a house. To afford children. To afford education. Students get shot in elementary, middle, high schools and colleges. Global warming is real and they know it. The rich (old) are getting richer and the poor (young) are getting poorer. Since 1980 we’ve been steadily cutting taxes on the wealthy reducing the subsidies of state colleges and universities. We’ve allowed tech and media, TV, videos, instagram, facebook, X, tiktok to present a view of the world unattainable by most – the “Kardashianation of America”. “There’s easy money out there and you’re a chump if you can’t get it!” 82% of young Americans have lost faith in America, making us ripe for revolution or authoritarian takeover.

    We have the resources to fix this, just not the will. We’re a nation run by old men, at the expense of our young. We need term limits for Congress, the Courts, the agencies and the White House. Mandatory gov’t retirement ~ 75 yrs? Median age in the Senate is 65 – so half are older!! House median is only 59. Our government is run by millionaires listening to millionaire lobbyists from trillionaire corporations.
